Hey Jennifer, So cool that we hit "publish now" at exactly the same time!

JMH, thank you for this spirited post. Almost like having you in the room! I'm in the north of nowhere and I'd love to read your poem in the new TNR. Can you e-mail me a copy?


according to my mother, "If you start the six from the bottom and not from the top, your foot will not change direction!"

hope you like the Howe and the Wolff.

all best,

I left it
on when I
left the house
for the pleasure
of coming back
ten hours later
to the greatness
of Teddy Wilson
"After You've Gone"
on the piano
in the corner
of the bedroom
as I enter
in the dark

This Way Out

by T.P.Winch

Ringfinger was nervous
Pinky terrified
when they learned
that Hand might succumb
to the rule of Thumb.
